Talking Eye Candy

Posted this over on M14forum.com but didn't want to leave you guys out. Just finished up my second build. Another Fulton Armory receiver mated up with a Windy City Sourcing parts kit. Bought the barrel, bolt, and stock through several sources including from members of this forum. The entire build went flawlessly now that I've learned a few tips and tricks from folks on the forums and by reading, reading & more reading. Wish like heck I had photographed the progression. Oh well, maybe next time. Anyway, thought I would share a few photographs for your enjoyment.

Cheers,
MD

Very nice. Now for all those out there wanting know whether to buy an assembled rifle or collect parts and have one assembled, how much do you have in your build?

My second build, the one with the walnut stock, cost me $1734.96. And since someone is bound to ask, yes, I kept track of EVERYTHING such as part costs, shipping cost, shim kit cost, and my FFL fee. Did not keep track of the first one but probably cost me about another $150 more to learn a few lessons about who to buy parts from and who not to.
Cheers,
MD

Your Fulton build is 17 numbers off mine. I thought it was cool to have #2500. Thanks for sharing. Love the stock..........
